    Hard to Kill Bloodrager.jpg

    Along with the DR3/Evil every three levels she's playing more like a Barb than a Barb does.

    9accorederakni.jpg

    Different kind of combo here. Dog trips, Daeran's proc Stuns, and Derakni AC down to single digits on Core Difficulty.

    Daeran11Melee.jpg

    She had insane SR so back to melee again for the rich kid. Looks like the Bell in the chapel is providing Good Hope here. No one can cast it regrettably. Look at Nenio's Snowball owning. It bypasses SR so she always has a couple on hand.

    Nenio11spellpen.jpg

    Focus on Spell Pen paying off for Nenio. She has a Belt that is supposed to summon a Demon when she casts a lvl 6 spell but it isn't working yet. Procs in general been pretty hit or miss.

    Order'sWrathDaze.jpg

    It's AoE but it's good enough for one or two targets and with Abundant Casting he can spam them.

    LeadingStrikeDamage.jpg

    This damage tacked onto everything is the Mythic Ability Leading Strike and Seelah has it with Shield Bash and Reg with Double Weapon so it triggers a lot. I think MC might have it with Cleave as well.

    UrbanLannTrip.jpg

    Made Lann an Urban Hunter for the Perception bonus but also the free CM Feats let you get him into melee while Mounted which is otherwise a pain. Occasionally they even land. Main goal is to take advantage of the Combat Reflexes he starts with, which means getting him into the thick of it.

    Force Realty isn't bad. Better than other Dispels because you add your Mythic Level, doesn't Dispel debuffs, and things like Mirror Image and Displacement are relevant until you get to True Seeing, Mass which I may not get to without a Cleric.

    rating from me. What a shit show. I also stopped reading there, waste of time to even acknowledge the existence of such brain dead opinions.

    In what way is NWN 1/2 deeper in terms of character building? Fighter and rogue for example are mostly mix in classes. Certain prestige classes rule supreme like RDD/ASOC/RWT which can even be combined.

    Well, jornos gonna jorno. Funny that it found an "overwhelming number" in the game, but remained "a little underwhelmed". So reddity.

    However. I don't understand "preview" and "August 2021". What does it mean?

    Remember this """review""" (https://www.pcgamer.com/pathfinder-kingmaker-review/) where the reviewer didn't even play the game and just used preview materials to write it, while giving it the same score as % of positive user reviews on Steam at the time. PC Gamer is interested more in writing daily articles about console exclusive games (RDR2 at the time, didn't even have PC version announced) than reviewing a prominent PC-exclusive in a historical PC genre. They're trash.

    Obviously, by "playing too safe to stand out" the author meant spider swarms before the nerf.

    Some optional encounters a lot harder than spiders.

    Strap Yourselves In Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    Most reviewers of this type are focused on getting information out there as fast as posible in order to get the most attention first. So, in order to do that, most often than not they have to spin a lot of bullshit. Can't dish out a decent review about a ~300h game before the deadline, because that would mean you'd have to... play it.

    Once you get used to spinning bullshit, your integrity and self-worth are out the window.

    Yeah, but at the same time, PoE2 got a multi-page review detailing every little thing and Bard's Tale IV got a better score. Reviewers totally don't get paid to shill, tho.

    the new avellone development makes me revisit this old question: did he and his contributions get cut out? i know that some devs claimed his part was just over, but i want to know the actual truth here, not PR vomit.

    I can only retell what I have heard from a man who knows a man… well, you get the picture. Most of Chris's contributions are comments and advice on texts already written or going to be written by others. Of course, no one is going to dismiss this advice, part of it is taken into account. As for the pieces written directly by Chris, they ARE almost all preserved (there aren't many of them).

    Maybe Chris will tell us more later.

    And as I said here some time ago, Owlcat Games will not comment on this, because their fear of SJW backlash far outweighs any obligations to a person whomever he might be.

    Wasn't Chris's job more then just writing? I think in Kingmaker he did do advising and looking through other people's writing, so I'd assume that we would be doing more of the same unless I'm misremembering it.

    Did anyone test if it's possible to have both the lich undead and companion and an animal companion at the same time? Am thinking of some builds involving that.
